Rich’s Inspiration to Help Others

Growing up, Rich was inspired to go to law school by a man he never met — his grandfather, Louis Edward Feingold.

Louis was an immigrant who came to the US from Eastern Europe in the early 1900s. He graduated from Harvard Law School and became a prominent attorney in Massachusetts. As an attorney, he dedicated his life to uplifting others and giving back to his community.

Louis’s life example inspired Rich to choose law as his career to help others — and that’s what he’s been doing for the last 34 years.

About Rich

Rich has served clients from all over the Greater Chicago Area and surrounding counties since 1986. He has helped countless clients get the Social Security Disability benefits and personal injury compensation they deserve.

He is admitted to practice in Illinois and federal court, including the United States Supreme Court. He is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, and the American Bar Association, and is a sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives (NOSSCR).

Although his firm, Richard I. Feingold & Associates, P.C., is based in Chicago, Illinois, Mr. Feingold and his team represent clients throughout the United States. He uses internet and communication technology to assist out-of-state clients and represent them just as effectively as local clients with whom he is able to meet personally.

Great Advocate!
It is my extreme pleasure to recommend Richard Feingold as a Disability Lawyer. I was denied twice from receiving disability benefits but Mr. Feingold was confident we would win our case. He held my hand through the entire process and we came away with a completely favorable decision. I am so pleased with the care and attention he and his staff provided. I feel confident that he could win any case brought to his firm.

One of the best lawyers
I am a firm believer in giving credit to where credit is due. I have tried twice to prove my disability case but was denied twice I spoke to Mr Fine-gold I hired him on the spot and this case took some time to finally come to a stop just last month He won my case we had a court hearing and he batted for me tooth and nail even at times speaking load proving his point when it was needed he was like a lion . I was in shock because every time we spoke he was always low in speaking. That day I seen another part of Richard that I never seen before. He is a Lawyer you would want to hire he will fight for what he believes is fair. That’s all I wanted was a fair finding and that is what I got was justice. He will fight for you tooth and nail again thank you Mr Feingold for winning my case. If you are searching for a Great Lawyer your search is over . He always answered your calls in a timely manner and he always kept you in the light he is not a lawyer you need to chase around even during the COVID shut down he would keep you up to date. He was not only my lawyer but he became my friend. Search no more your struggle has ended if you hire Mr Feingold.

Exceptional, Empathetic, Patient
Mr. Feingold provided exceptional legal services, patiently and clearly explaining the steps in a very long SSDI claim process that resulted in the best possible outcome. He encouraged me to stick with the process through two appeals, and made the many steps very manageable and easy to understand. Beyond his professional expertise, I most appreciate his empathetic and genuinely caring personality. He and his friendly and knowledgeable staff were a pleasure to interact with over the span of two years. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Feingold to anyone seeking excellent legal representation. I feel truly blessed to have been represented so expertly and treated with such generous compassion.

When you need the best look no further than Attorney Richard Isaac Feingold and his team, simply the best. Thanks be to God and his instrument Mr. Richard Isaac Feingold.

Would hire him again
Working with Richard helped me navigate the process related to my disability claim. He cut through a lot of paperwork, thus saving time. I definitely would not have been able to take this on with my disability. Not to mention, he’s friendly and easy to work with.

Dedicated & Personalized
I found Rich right on this very website. And per the other reviews here, I'm also extremely satisfied with the advocacy he did for my case. He is very dedicated to his clients. Rich always made sure to answer any questions I had. And, as my case required multiple hearings, Rick always thoroughly walked me through each what to expect. And although several hearings were required, Rich never made me feel like he was giving up on my case. If anything, he was even more dedicated in obtaining approval. I absolutely recommend Rich Feingold.

Excellent Communications
I contacted Mr. Feingold regarding a disability denial, and while we did not engage in services, Rich was incredibly prompt, detail oriented and directed me to other services that would be able to assist me. I would strongly recommend his firm to anyone with disability issues.

Dependable, Dedicated, Punctual, Professional & Honest Attorney
After trying one time on my own to file & failing my Disability case, I decided to hire Mr. Feingold & Staff. I have dealt with attorneys on a contingency basis before, and I had bad experiences with them, so initially, I was a bit skeptical. Mr. Feingold was very sweet, patient, & honest with me since the beginning, and always reassured me that we could win the case. He is everything indicated in my Title line (above), but above all, he is someone you can trust; someone who is punctual and is unlike other "hyperactive" attorneys who only augment your stress anxiety, Mr. Feingold always makes you feel at ease. During the Hearing with the ALJ, I practically had to say nothing, Mr. Feingold took care of it all, and throughout the whole process Mr. Feingold explained everything going on. He was aware that I have an Associate's Degree in Paralegal studies, but he never insinuated or assumed that I should know everything taking place. Even when Mr. Feingold promised to call, he was right on target, and if running late, he would still call and would inform me as to when he was able to call. As I commented earlier, I've dealt with bad attorneys in the past, but Mr. Feingold is a "gem" to the field(s) of Law he practices, and if anyone considers hiring him, they can rest assured that if Mr. Feingold took the case, it's because he is extremely confident he will win. I highly recommend that anyone initially filing or struggling with a currently filed Disability case, to contact Atty Feingold and his staff to determine if he can take your case. Once you have met with Mr. Feingold, and he reassures you that your case has merit, rest assured that he will combine his knowledge, effort, and past experience, to win your case!
